Would You Consider Supporting Me As a Patron?

Would You Consider Supporting Me as a Patron

I have been blogging at Challies.com on a daily basis for over 15 years. In that time I have written thousands of articles, reviewed hundreds of books, prepared a collection of graphics and infographics, recorded a whole collection of videos and podcasts, and published quite a few books. All the while I have attempted to keep my focus on issues that are of particular interest to Christians. In the last year, visitors to the site read nearly 20 million articles., while millions more watched videos, listened to a podcast, or otherwise engaged with something I wrote or shared.

One of my great desires through this time has been to freely give away as much as possible. Obviously I have needed to charge for books, but beyond that, pretty much everything else has been freely and widely distributed. This has been possible largely because of sponsors and advertisers. Yet, like many others who do their work online, I am finding it increasingly difficult to support and sustain what I do this way.

Over the years, many individuals have asked how they can lend their support to this work. This is where Patreon comes in. Patreon provides a means of linking content producers (like me) with supporters (like you). I think this is the more sustainable path into the future for sites like mine.

Several years ago I began to write on a full-time basis, meaning this is now my sole occupation. I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider supporting me by becoming a patron. By supporting me with a monthly gift, you will be able to be part of this ongoing work. Not only will you support the work, but you will also gain a voice through my patron-only stream at Patreon. Funds donated will be used to support my family and to help create great content or to otherwise improve, support, and enhance Challies.com. In one way or another they will all be used to allow me to continue to do what I have been doing for these past 15 years

Thank you for considering becoming a patron of Challies.com. Your support means so much to me. As an expression of gratitude, I will attempt to provide occasional gifts and deals to supporters. I’ll also prioritize your questions and ideas when it comes to writing articles, producing videos, creating Ask Me Anything sessions, and so on. I’ll also provide monthly patron-only updates about life and ministry.

Patreon

Please understand that I intend for Challies.com to always remain entirely free. In fact, patrons like you will help ensure that it always remains that way.

(I’m also sometimes asked about one-time gifts. If that is of interest to you, they can be forwarded to the mailing address here or to PayPal. )

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…
